<< I think of the young man on the
Sudbury video, who says when he came to Sudbury Valley he was at first
disoriented -- "What do I do? How will I get into college?" (The
response being "Do what you want to do"). That young man was coming from
a whole world (public school) where learning means listening and doing
homework, and where success means getting A's that you can use as currency
to get into college. Sudbury Valley gave him a supportive community that
allowed him to step beyond the limitations of that world view, and trust
his own interests and capacities (does that sound right to you, anyone who
knew him? Mimsy?) >>

Oh yeah! Mimsy
